AMD’s new desktop CPUs, the Ryzen 5000 series, will start arriving on Nov. 5 with the goal of offering the best PC gaming performance.
The main improvements involve the Zen 3 architecture, which is designed to boost the max clock speeds and increase the instructions per clock by 19 percent. The layout on the Ryzen chips has also been redesigned so that the cores have direct access to the L3 cache for lower latency, enabling faster PC gaming.
“Zen 3 increases our overall lead in performance,” said AMD CEO Lisa Su during a Thursday event. “It increases our lead in power efficiency, and also now it delivers the best single-threaded performance and gaming performance as well.”
The Ryzen 5000 family will first arrive in four processors:
The Ryzen 9 5950X: a 16-core, 32-thread chip for $799
The Ryzen 9 5900X: a 12-core, 24-thread chip for $549
In a blog post highlighting how advances in its processors have helped gamers, Intel announced that its next-generation desktop processor will be coming in early 2021. The 11th-gen processor is also known by its Rocket Lake code name, and will include some of the key features that Intel introduced in its 11th-gen laptop Tiger Lake processors, such as support for the faster PCIe 4.0 specification, and Wi-Fi 6 for wireless connectivity.
“I’m also happy to confirm that the next generation 11th-gen Intel Core desktop processors (code-named “Rocket Lake”) is coming in the first quarter of 2021 and will provide support for PCIe 4.0,” Intel vice president and general manager of the VR, gaming, and e-sports group John Bonini wrote in a blog post on Medium, noting that “gaming is in Intel’s DNA.”
The company’s announcement that Rocket Lake will make its way to gaming desktops comes in the middle of

PC gaming has rarely been more popular than it is now, what with the pandemic and all. If you’re limping along with old hardware or just looking for an alternative to consoles, Dell has a deal that might be just the ticket.
For a limited time, and while supplies last, the Alienware Aurora R9 Gaming Desktop drops to $833 with promo code 50OFF699. That, combined with another coupon (FSAWDEAL05) that should get automatically applied at checkout, saves you a total of $327.
The Aurora is kind of a stunner, bringing a refreshing futuristic design alternative to the boring beige and black towers of yesteryear. Thankfully, that form is not without function: There’s room inside to add more RAM or storage, plus a tool-less chassis that allows for easy graphics card swapping.
